I dunno, but I know that to grow it, you use trickle-down watering...

Plus, as soon as it's in the ground, you'll forget where you planted it.

Very good, JimS. Got any more tasteful jokes? Maybe some about
people dying of cancer or AIDS?

I like sophmoric humor as well as anyone, but I would expect to
be brought up short if I made fun of the disabilities of anyone
dying of an incurable disease. Particularly if I exercised such
poor taste in a public forum.

Yeah, I thought of making a joke like that, but passed on it, because it could be taken as an
Alzheimer's joke. I would have, though (and the poster probably did) mean it as a reference to
slimebag Reagan's slimebag Iran Contra debacle, after which he multiply purgured himself by claiming
to not remember anything about the whole thing. (Then another slimebag who tried to destroy
evidence was made out to be a hero of the right-wing). See:

It is a big world, Darren. I imagine that thare are places where
the kind of vitrol expressed in your political commentary is
welcome or at least acceptable. Here, it is clearly off topic.

I ordered it this year. It is supposed to be red and white and I thought it
would go well in a bed with Mister Lincoln and Full Sail. I think it is a
new rose this year from J&P, one of their own root varieties that are
supposed to be tougher than the rest, or at least that's how they bill it.

It depends on what your definition of "is" is.

As soon as it's established, a shot from the Bushy Knoll strikes it down.

Wrong president.

Ronald Reagan gets shot by a rosarian obsessed with Jodie Foster.

I thought that your original comment in this thread was both
witty and funny. If I gave anyone the impression that my
comments were directed to you or your comment, I apologise.

Charles
